The NCEO Announces Its New Board Members

Executive Director

The next term of the NCEO's board of directors begins on April 1, 2021, and I am delighted to announce who will be joining our board of directors for this term.

  • Todd Leverette, Democracy at Work Institute, Apis and Heritage
  • Linshuang Lu, Praxis Consulting Group
  • Mike Mallaro, VGM Group
  • Amanda Wolkowitz, Alpine Testing Solutions

These new directors bring an impressive array of experience, from worker cooperatives to ownership culture, from executive leadership in an employee-owned company to service on a communication committee. We are excited by the projects that these new directors have expressed interest in supporting, and, together with the rest of our board, we look forward to a bountiful, productive, and very busy 2021!

On March 31, 2021, Suzanne McDowell, David Solomon, Brian Sweeney, and Cecil Ursprung will rotate off of the board. All of them have made the NCEO and employee ownership stronger, both in their roles as NCEO directors and in their "day jobs." We warmly thank them for all they did for the NCEO while board members, and we look forward to continued collaboration with all of them.
